[SAN ANTONIO] — The San Antonio Spurs played host to the Utah Jazz last night and the Spurs did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 109-103 victory. The win bumps San Antonio's record up to 59-17 on the season, while the loss drags Utah's down to 47-30. Though a win's a win and Spurs fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.
An impressive performance from Rudy Gobert led all players in the contest and his 19 points, 14 rebounds, 5 assists, 6 blocks and 0 steals in 41 minutes will make many-a-fantasy owner proud. Unfortunately for Gobert, what really matters - the result on the scoreboard - still leans in favor of the Spurs. Perhaps continued performances like this one in the near future will get Utah back in the win column before too long.
At the helm for the Spurs in the victory was Kawhi Leonard and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Gobert, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Leonard posted 25 points, 4 rebounds and 7 assists in the win.
San Antonio's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Jazz, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Spurs will settle for the upper hand in this one.
Up next for the reeling Spurs will be a date with the while the visiting Jazz will look to bounce back in a matchup with the .
